BEFORE IT WAS A HIT SONG…
These songs are well known but you may not know about the earlier attempts to score a hit record with prior versions of the same song.
It’s All Over Now
The 1st Rolling Stones single to reach #1 in the UK was "It's All Over Now". That 1964 release also charted in America, Canada and Europe. While most of the band's hits were penned by band members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, this chart-topping disc was a remake.
The original version was released by the R&B group The Valentinos. This act, consisting of 5 brothers, featured soul singer Bobby Womack. He co-wrote the song with Shirley Womack. It was released in the same year as the more successful cover version by The Stones.
